Nice reports!! Awesome pictures as always. The battle happening in Report 9 is so cool to see. I’m still just so glad that we document these epic games and big battles.

Yes, that’s sir Edward from F&S.
But that’s the problem and where my confusion comes from. The name of the crew is Sir Edmund, not “sir Edward”.
I wonder, did someone actually made a Cursed fleet with 2 – 3 sea monsters, for 80 points, that’s actually playable?
Not that I recall offhand, though it’s probably been done. I like using them at [Read more]

With 4 cargo Divine Dragon can carry linked El Fantasma, helmsman, sir Edward and 2x oarsmen.
The link makes 5 spaces. 4 of those crew take up space, leaving one still open.
Who is “sir Edward”? I thought you were talking about Sir Edmund from F&S. Why would you need a reducer crew if you’re not even close to being over on points?
The Di…[Read more]
What’s the most unlikely string of luck you’ve had in a game? I just had one where I got an extra action off of Admiral Morgan 6-7 times in a row, with no re-rollers. And I still lost lol.
I assume that’s more of a deathmatch fleet?
A simple Divine Dragon setup with Fantasma, helmsman, and 3 oarsmen (or 4 since Fantasma links) should do well. Hellfire is a solid “stock” or “numbers” gunship. I love the Juggernaut actually, I think she is possibly more underrated than Hellfire.

Given the above, and assuming it has the Cog keyword, I’d say that’s a 9-10 point ship
Agreed. May seem high at first but cargo is very valuable and the Cog ability is quite good.
This is a collection of all the legal research and outreach I’ve done regarding the patents/rights/IP to Pirates CSG and things related to it. As new developments or findings come in I plan to update this post […]

This was my initial idea behind the Cog ability, though I’m open to criticism and discussion over whether or not this is a good idea. You suggestion of making it be the cogs action instead only really hinders it by forcing the cog to sit for 1 turn with whatever cargo it gathered, making it fairly vulnerable for a 1 masted ship with no inherent d…
Cog: Once per turn, a friendly ship within S of this ship may explore her as a free action. (I forgot equipment was a thing)
This may work, but the free action coming from outside the ship makes it prone to exploitation. Example: Is the once per turn for each friendly ship exploring this ship? Or once per turn that ONE friendly ship can e…[Read more]
Since then, I have then been learning all I can about the game. Thanks for creating this site and the podcasts Ben. I assumed it would be a hunt to find information on the game, but you have provided a wealth of it. Amazing job!
Welcome aboard! And thank you! 😀

Sorry of the long post.
These are interesting ideas. I think the word you’re looking for is “lateen” sail. Unless lanteen is an alternate spelling I’m not aware of.
The only improvements I would suggest are to the wording of the abilities. It’s best to be as concise and clear as possible, while sticking to what Wizkids wrote so pe…[Read more]
